Structural Surveys are often necessary if you want to buy a property and a mortgage is required.
A full structural survey is the most comprehensive type of building survey available. As fully qualified engineers we will carry out a detailed visual survey of the property, and include all structural elements of the building.
Our structural surveys are non-destructive and non-intrusive, include:
Making a visual appraisal of the external elevations of the property along with the internal structure, including the roof space.
Commenting on the general condition of the building fabric, its component parts (walls, roof and floors) and any distortion caused by settlement or on-going structural problems.
Identifying any obvious internal modifications and any external influences which may affecting the property, i.e. nearby watercourse, trees and shrubs.
Commenting on any obvious rising and penetrating damp problems and works required to bring the property up to standard.
